    Default Retention Training - redux (Pittsburgh and surrounding areas)

    Retention Training in the Pittsburgh greater area.

    Prior class thread:http://forum.pafoa.org/open-carry-14...portunity.html

    I am interested in another round of this training since I was racing during the last one.

    At this point as we did last round I want to gauge interest and get at least 10 people down so we can get the class rolling.

    The list of people CONFIRMED so far:

    Definite:
    1. Falcn
    2. ShawnL
    3. Annie Oakley

    Possible depending on date:

    This is not enough people to hold the class - minimum is 8

    Definitely out:
    NP1724
    Chesterton123
    Unloved
    Smalls
    PAallterrain
    LittleRedToyota

    CLASS DETAILS
    Location: 3606 Brownsville Road Pittsburgh, PA 15227 <- Click for Google Maps

    Course Cost: $100/person Payable by checks, or cash (I have PayPal if some prefer that)

    Necessary Items: Inert training gun and a holster

    Date: Sunday, Nov. 15th, 2009
    Time: 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

    I'll be posting more details as they unfold and updating this first post with new information to prevent new people from having to search through pages of posts.

    Thanks,
    Ryan

    Price: $100
    you will need an inert training gun that fits your carry holster



    what I did last time was get a list of available dates from Pete. For this one I would suggest no sooner than mid November. You need to recruit the people, get and hold their checks, communicate with everyone,............ a month is not a whole lot of time for that.

    after you get the available dates pick off the ones that wont work for you. Then PM the available dates to those who are on the list. have them tell you which they cannot make, and pick your date from there. Thats what seemed to work best for me.

    dont debate dates in thread, it never goes well.

    oh, did I mention, I'M IN

    I would be highly interested.

    I'm not from Pittsburgh. (About 3 hours away). However my G/f graduated from St. Vincent in Latrobe and would love to make a trip up to Pitt to see some of her girlfriends that moved there.

    If it would be on a Fri/Sat you can definately count me in.

    Sidenote: Where would I find a blue gun? I know you mean the plastic ones. I guess an internet search is in order.

    Yeah the blue gun thing....I guess it doesn't have to match the carry gun exactly, just fit the holster, correct?

    I don't think there is a CW9 Blue Gun out there....

    Shawn - I PM'ed Pete about dates, but haven't heard anything - maybe I will ping him again.

    Well that may pose a problem since me retention holster is made specifically for my weapon. No worries though, I'll see what I can find. If not, I'll just pick up another holster and a Blue Gun.

    But definately count me in at this moment.

    I'm interested although time is limited. If it falls when I have my son, then no. Also, probably would be best on a Sunday (Deer Season).

    I was just going to tell you that. I just ordered one for my wife to use in the MCS class we are taking next weekend.

    takes Pete a few days to reply to PM's.
